Northern Alliance Learning Festival 2018

Author: Marie-Claire Lyon, Aberdeen City Council

The Northern Alliance Learning Festival (formerly Aberdeen Learning Festival) took place in February 2018 in Aberdeen. We welcomed Janette Kelso and Meryl James from SCILT who ran a workshop for teachers.

We also organised an Erasmus+ workshop to inform teachers about opportunities and procedures to apply for grants for immersion courses and exchanges. A group of Aberdeen City Council teachers, who took part in the course in October 2017 at the Cavilam Alliance Française in Vichy in France, shared their experiences. They highlighted the ways in which it has enhanced their teaching practice and had an impact on their pupils.

The next group of primary teachers is preparing to go to Vichy this summer.
